For the love of black lace...


Happy-birthday-LESSology

So my little challenge site LESSology turns 2 this month. And here's what I created for LESSology Challenge #29: Birthday Party - a frame with a birthday banner, an upcycled tin can and a dressed up box. With gorgeous black lace.



I had this really old wooden frame. Some of the black paint had already chipped off. I contemplated spray painting it but went in with a black Sharpie instead. [A lazy girl's solution!]


Then I adhered gorgeous black lace over the frame for a classy elegant look. Now, having used lace in many projects, I know it's easy to adhere it because of the intricate designs. That's why I love my Xyron 5" Creative Station. It provides an even adhesive all over - fast and not messy!


If you don't already know, I love tall round tins. I've been decorating them slowly so that I can totally "dress" up my dressing area... [will share when it's all done!]:)
This tin can was blue and was hard to cover up with patterned paper so I went with metallic spray paint instead. Krylon is my fave spray paint brand because I'm always happy with the finish [and the smell of the fumes doesn't get you high *LOL*].


Love this corporate gift box because there is a white panel that I could "dress" up with washi tape [the corporate gift was an optical mouse but I was more excited over the box! *LOL*].

P/s: Come celebrate with LESSology Challenge #29: Birthday Party! Last few days to play along with my guest Lisa's shaped card challenge! :)

Black sharpie to the rescue! I can't count how many things I've used a black sharpie on over the years. They are great for fixing scuffs on black shoes. :) Love your projects - the black lace is so sophisticated and feminine.

Helen Tilbury said...

That is such a great idea with the spray paint on the can. I was struggling with exactly that problem last night on an almost identical container & gave up & made a layout instead! Now to find my spray paint...
